They don't even try to be subliminal about it.

Now that I have a problem (rear shock is springy after COBDR), I can't get him to return my emails or calls. Jason knows his suspension, but he's too busy to take care of his customers.

Hope this helps.

Correct Bike

This is clearly the correct bike for Utah dualsport.










You can ride all day long at 90 mph, then all the next day at 10 mph ...

... with 80 lb of camping gear, 6-pack of beer, flask, pistol + 100 rounds, Dora the explorer cup, fire starter/ extra gas, ..., tools, ... etc.














......

... Everything else is just improvization ...










But .... Ya gotta lose the Hepco Beckers for the tight-n-twisties ...

Well, the HBs do have their place. They make it so much nicer to clean the mud from the tires, inspect the bottom of the bash plate & numerous other sundry duties...



Luckily, KMC1 didn't get any to loose!

Thank you KMC1! If you remember the Lehi mechanic's name or if anyone else knows him please drop me a line. My 800 needs to be ready for winter riding...the second this leg can carry weight I'm on two wheels.

Just go to the racetek site and he's listed there.
